October Hybrid Atc Calendar Swap

15 October 2014 - 12:29 PM

Lei and I are SO EXCITED to be bringing back the ATC Desktop Calendar swap for 2015! – This is a cute idea for you OR great to give as a gift!

Description: ATC Calendar Pages
Quantity: You will be making a total of 12 identical ATC cards for the month you choose.

* The calendar portion will measure 1.25 x 1.5 inches
and placement of that calendar on the ATC is your choice. The rest of the card can be designed/decorated any way you want within the guidelines of the "special design notes" using your favorite SG collection and embellishments. I will provide you with a correct size calendar sheet for you to print and cut for your cards.

** Special design notes - the calendar is designed to be oriented in the landscape position. Please leave the top 1/2 inch of the card free of embellishments
so holes can be punched for the book rings. (See photos below) DO NOT PUNCH your own holes. We will do that for you so that all calendar cards will be uniform and fit the base. We will make your base and ship it to you along with the cards being swapped out. YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE your own rings (don't mail the rings – just hang onto them!)


Here is one from Marij:

Standard size ATC is 3.5 x 2.5, please use a good base card-stock and provide at least 2 layers of card-stock. Use a minimum of 2 embellishments and/or techniques. Remember to sign and date the back of your card!

Sign up: October 24th
Due IN Hand to me: November 24th

These need to be in my hands no later than November 24th. I will swap them out within a week so we can beat the beginning of the holiday mailing frenzy. If all are received early, they will be swapped out at that time. Again, would like to get them swapped out asap to avoid the holiday mailing rush!!

Mailing instructions:
Place your 12 ATC cards in a plastic zip-lock baggie to prevent any possible water damage. Include a SASE with at least the same amount of postage as it took to mail to Carla + 2 additional stamps. All unused postage will be returned.

Please feel free to PM me with any questions you have. This is on a first come, first served basis, so sign up quickly!! IF BY CHANCE we do not get 12 people to sign and you would like to take 2 months (24 cards, 12 each),PM me and let me know you are willing, if need be.

As you call out in this thread which month you want, I will edit this post to reflect who has which month and which months are still available. Again, first come (call out) gets first dibs on a particular month. Once you see your name on the list you can start making your 12 cards. I will email you the calendar grid for your month and send you my mailing address. The sooner they get to me, the sooner you get your complete calendar back!!

8 Pm Et, Creating Colophons Chat

04 October 2014 - 09:30 AM

Join Carla (CRS) and Marilyn (MariJ) for a fun chat about colophons! A colophon is an identifying mark or emblem used by a printer or a publisher. For card makers, it is a little design on the back of the card identifying who made it.  We’ll have some tips about making them quickly and easily, as well as some ways you can customize them for different cards. Hope to see you in the chat room!


Post your colophon sample in the gallery, share the link in this thread, by 12 midnight ET tonight, and we'll pick a random winner for a Brush Set!

October Swap Crop Partners!

01 October 2014 - 10:27 AM

Can you believe it's October?? And that means it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So for our theme, I thought we could go with  all things Pink! If you don't have any photos for something pink, swap photos that can be scrapped with pink.


So sign up in this thread by Tuesday,October 7th. On Wednesday, October 8th, I'll partner people up. I'll try to give you all new partners, but it's getting harder and harder each month! Then contact the person above you and below you on the list and exchange email addresses. You'll send photos to the person below you. You can send as many photos as you'd like, and any journaling, but only 1 layout is required. Reveal day will be Saturday, October 25th! We won't be having a chat this month, because of other events going on!


Partners are listed below:
